you cannot assign because you are not an instructor

I have set teacher1's permissions as: Contribute, SLK Instructor. They are shown in Site Settings -> Permissions.

Then I login as teacher1. But when I want to assign solitaire.zip, it tells me that "cannot ... you are not an instructor".

Is this a bug?

It could be a bug, or it could be that teacher1 is not an instructor on the site that you're assigning to. When you assign to a different site, you have to be an instructor on that site in order for the assignment to work. If you're not inheriting permissions, then this could be the problem.

Hi David, thanks for the reply. Sorry I just reply now, just been back.

I remember that I had inherited the permission, so all users and their permissions should have been in the sub-sites, right?

The easiest way to check is just to go to the site that you're assigning to and click People and Groups in the left column, then (I think) All People, then Permissions, and check the permissions on that site.
